To all the McEwan Family - We send our sincere consolations in the recent passing of dear Neil. He was well respected and much loved during his very lengthy life. During our time in the Wyndham pastorate (1979-1984) - and indeed ever since then - we always found Neil a humble friend and a faithful Christian gentleman. Visiting the family and farm was a pleasure. It was so suitable to have Neil's service there, with the rural livestream setting. May you all know and experience the constant upholding, comforting presence of the Good Shepherd. He is with you all, and indeed on ahead as well. John 10:27-29 - so true now for Neil. Our love and prayers are with you - Roy and June McKenzie, Gore.

Roy and June McKenzie.


Also watched the live stream of Neil’s funeral. Very disappointed the sound system wasn’t turned on?

Thinking of you all today. Uncle Neil was one of a kind. Your family was fun to spend time with. A blessing to have such a man for an uncle. A bit sad the live stream didn't work out as planned.
Bless you all and love

Judy Mitchell
